I work alone and can, therefore, be flexible with working hours and managing deadlines. Whether you've written an audit, a dissertation or a novel, I would love to hear from you.
I also have a lot of experience in working with foreign businesspeople and students and can offer a language-polishing service for menus, essays, reports, etc. I would also be happy to provide online feedback or advice on English grammar, vocabulary and levels of formality in language.
Area Covered: Anywhere
Work Experience Summary: I first learned proofreading and editing skills whilst working for an academic publisher in Oxford in the 1990s.
I then taught Business English in Japan, Poland and Finland and my students included bankers, lawyers, journalists, philosophers, economists and army officers. Whilst not being an expert in any of these fields, I learned about my students' areas of expertise and enjoyed helping them create reports and pesentations in plain English.
For the last couple of years I have checked clinical research articles prior to publication for Polish researchers writing in English about the area of palliative medicine. This has involved a broad range of medical terminology, as this field works with an increasingly multidisciplinary approach.
Education Summary: I have a BA Special Hons Degree in English Language and Literatures (Upper 2:1).
I also hold a TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) Certificate and 6 years' experience
I have also tackled A Level Human Biology, Art History, Economic History, and Psychology since gaining my degree, so have a working knowledge of quite a few topics. Except Physics.
